As part of the Instagram March Meet The Maker challenge, this blog post is to introduce myself.

Im Georgia, founder and director of Wyatt and Jack.

Ive been running W&J for around 7 years now,  [formerly known as Jamtarts and Tractors], until I was fortunate enough to receive investment, both privately and from the IOW Chamber of Commerce, which allowed me to rebrand as Wyatt and Jack [both of which are family names, relevant as its very much a family run company]

It started when a friends father [an IOW beach concessionaire], asked me to remove some PVC covers from some 1970's sun beds.

It was bright yellow fabric, with 'FOR HIRE' written across the top. I loved it and couldn't part with it, so i made myself a bag...someone saw it, so i made them a bag... and so it went on...

It was then I realised that at the end of each season, there was a lot of this fabric being thrown away. Often at expense to the concessionaire as they were having to pay the council...

I like a road trip, so i sought out the beach concessionaires from around the coasts of the UK and collected up as much fabric as i could...

I love my job. Sometimes its tricky to switch between roles and i hadn't really envisaged myself as a company director, anyway.... this video better explains what i'm banging on about...

nice to meet you and thanks for supporting the bags
